Painting my way to recovery…
Once upon a time, a young happy athletic girl found herself with a narrow existence struggling with a chronic pain from my head to my toes throughout her life. In 2013 a diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). This autoimmune disease is a type of arthritis of the spine. No cure, but at least I had confirmation. I am still determined and optimistic. There is always light at the end of my road, field of trees or even darkness.
Everyday my hope was that my words, actions and my creative self will encourage the observer to seek a moment of kindness and reflection each and every day of our lives through my art.
One day I found a surgeon to fix the mechanical defect in my back. After many years, it felt foreign yet holding a paint brush in my hand.
Because of that desire to create no matter what obstacle.
My own art became my physical therapy for my hand, arm and back during that first recovery.
Beauchamp Art finally has become this perfect creative enterprise some thirteen years later and with a total of five surgeries and some titanium hardware.
I have been an artist all my life my earliest memory is my hand in plaster for a Mother’s Day gift in kindergarten.
Simply All I do is – Create for you… Give to you a reflection of time…. So you experience your heartfelt emotion. My life is art changing and evolving in each moment.
My artistic challenge is to translate what I see into my painting. With no real classic training it is difficult achieve my desired painting.
I truly what to learn as much as possible, I want to be master painter in landscape and portraits of people and animals.
I know that the Old Masters Academy membership could help me get to the next level. I think this academy is an excellent source for Fine Art to guide those who desire to learn.
I want to win because I need help with color theory, and my love of art history will be nourished with course. I like the fact it can be customized to help me improve my skills as an oil painter. I want to be part of an art community that has like-minded desire to learn the old masters techniques.
Why vote for me? I am confident, passionate artists who will pay my knowledge forward to young kids interested in art. This opportunity will allow me to improve the world. Vote for me so I may reach for what’s possible with my painting, and building that more perfect union between those that take their art and show others that any dream is possible if you believe in yourself.
Thank you for this opportunity
